    ABC programming is aired by independently-owned affiliates in most markets.  These affiliates can pull programming at their discretion.  

    Call your local affiliate and threaten to boycott the advertisers on their local newscast.  The last part of that threat is important as stations make most of their revenue on advertising from newscasts.

    Contact info for larger independently-owned markets:

    Boston (WCVB-5, owned by Hearst-Argyle): 781-449-0400

    Dallas/Fort Worth (WFAA-8, owned by Belo): 214-748-9631

    Atlanta (WSB-2, owned by Cox Communications): 404-897-7000

    Seattle (KOMO-4, owned by Fisher Broadcasting): (206) 404-4000

    Miami (WPLG-10, owned by Post-Newsweek Stations): (305) 576-1010

    Let them know that you know that they are independently-owned and can choose NOT TO AIR the broadcast (if they try to pass blame to ABC.)

    New York, Los Angeles, Chicago, Philadelphia, San Francisco, and Houston affiliates are owned by Disney/ABC.
